Photos of yesterdays stamping

Good afternoon all


As I have just got back from dropping my car off for its safety check I thought whilst I was waiting for its return that I would get the photo slide show sorted of the cards I made yesterday, & finished this morning.  So here it is -



I really need to sort out the lighting when taking these - this group was taken on my kitchen work top right by the window - but there stills seems to be a bit of a blue-ish tinge.  Will have to try craft room desk next time,  providing there is enough room.

I really do like using the inks on the card - Tim Holtz style.  You know we have been doing something similar for some while but since Tim Holtz came on the scene & really kicked it up a notch or two that's how everyone refers to it.  I enjoy seeing how the different colours used together turn out.  The very dark blue one I put a little too much on in the centre - so I just gently wiped it with a baby wipe & lifted the excess off.

The elegant lady in shades of green is mounted onto a piece of card that I had inked with a brayer & spring colours, spritzed it lightly with water & then wrapped it in clingfilm to get the marbled look.  That was one of the finds yesterday.  I also used some if it for stamping the sentiment on. The flower image that looks like some tulips at the top of a Celtic knot I have had for a while & this is the first time I have used it.  Rather nice - I think I will use that some more.

OK, that's it - not sure that I will drop by again today, as I have a meeting to go to tonight - another "last" meeting of work I am backing out from, & I also have to make sure I have everything ready for the Mold club meeting tomorrow night.

Take care
